Yes! I did it! I managed to devote a whole day to documentation - getting to know docbook, writing installation instructions on the wiki and generally updating and adding documentation all around.
But I am not done yet: We actually have plans for a real manual. With pages and content and everything :)
On a less cheery note: Someone reported problems with our binary packeges. Both the debian package and the generic binary package apparently have some issues. I have installed a clean Ubuntu 8.10 in a virtual machine and am going to double-check everything tomorrow.
